KnowledgeKnut tagged me! We are back in the schoolyard again. And I’m okay with it. I always liked tag. In the scouts we played a slightly nastier version of the game called “Ditch-em.” In the polite versions of that game those who weren’t “it” just completely disappeared making it impossible to be found and tagged. In the less polite versions of the game we set up tricks and traps for those chasing us.
A visual representation of the current game:
For some reason I feel like Uncle Sam is pointing in my direction… Anyone else feel that way? Hmm, either Uncle Sam or maybe Smokey the Bear. Speaking of scouts I can’t remember how many times we almost burned down something… but, that’s another story altogether. Let’s get on with the game, shall we? We shall…
- Post these rules
- Post a photo of yourself (if you want to) and eleven random facts about yourself
- Answer the questions given to you in the tagger’s post.
- Create eleven new questions and tag new people to answer them.
- Go to their blog/twitter and let them know they have been tagged.
– 2 – Eleven random facts about me:
1. I’m feeling a bit odd today.
3. Did I mention the scouts? Yeah, I’m an eagle.
5. I definitely think rules are meant to be stretched to the limits.
7. I only almost accidentally burned down my house once. It involved fireworks. I was in junior high.
9. I’ve posted a few pictures of me in some of the previous games of tag I was pulled into. If you are feeling less lazy than me, you can search for them and, er, um, check me out.
11. It’s not that I’m lazy so much as that I’m not getting a lot of sleep these days. The little prince isn’t yet on any sort of discernible schedule.
– 3 – Questions from KnowledgeKnut and my answers:
1. If you could spend time with someone who inspired(s) you, who would that be?
My maternal grandfather. (Mom, I’m not just saying that to see if I can get you to cry.)
He was an amazing man… and if half of the memories I have of him, and half of the stories I’ve heard about him are true at all, he was more than an amazing man. I never got to spend much time with him when I was old enough to appreciate the wisdom and experiences I could get from him. I’d love to have that opportunity now.
3. If you could be the opposite sex for one week, what would you do?
I plead the fifth.
4. What is your dream car?
I’m not really a car guy. If had the money I’d probably buy a corvette…
5. What is something you’ve always wanted to say to someone but never had the nerve?
I’m sure there have been things, but I don’t remember them. For the most part I try to speak my mind.
6. When you forgive someone, can you forget?
7. If you could be any Royal (dead or alive), who would you be?
Me. The Jester of the Matticus Kingdom. Duh!
Because being the Jester is total awesomesauce.
9. Your favorite movie has became your reality, what is the movie and what part are you playing?
Too many choices…. too many…. too… *beep* sorry, you have fried the Jester’s brain (nice going there wiseguy), please bear with us as we try to get things up and running again…. *beep*
If they ever make the Dark Tower series into a movie (or 7… or 14…). I would be Roland Deschain of Gilead.
10. Your goal is to become famous, how do you plan to do that?
With the wordiness of my wordy words, of course.
11. When you are gone (dead) what is the one thing that you want to remembered for?
My wordy words. Didn’t we just cover that?
– 4 – Questions and people I’m tagging:
1. Coke or Pepsi?
3. Mac or PC?
5. Tastes Great or Less Filling?
7. Why is the answer to life, the universe and everything “42?”
8. Pen or pencil?
10. Manual or automatic?
(Thanks to my brilliant wife who helped me come up with this list of questions. She is AMAZING.)
Each of these wonderful bloggers has guest blogged for me in the last couple of weeks, picking up the slack around the kingdom while my efforts have been focussed elsewhere. And how do I repay them? I tag them, of course! Don’t you wish you had guest blogged for me too??!!
Of course you do!
